This E-type has been stored for ten years and in all this time it has never been covered by a sheet: in theory this is not correct but on the other hand now the car has the classic patina of the barn find. The car has a beautiful color (Opalescent Silver Blue) and beautiful blue… Read More Blue sleeper: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 2+2
We have already seen so many Jaguar e-types, but every now and then – very rarely – a very special one emerges from the darkness. This is the case of this OTS (Open Two Seater), one of the very first produced by the Coventry factory, which has very special characteristics, although to the majority they… Read More Details matter: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
If you think that the barn finds are found only in the US, you are wrong, and this auction is proof of this. There is in fact a collection of 81 cars (none in good condition, some in desperate conditions) that will be auctioned (also online) tomorrow by a french auction house that we did not… Read More The sunday auction: 81 barn finds
Another E-Type Jaguar? Why not? In the end it is an icon of the automotive industry and, last but not least, it is beautiful. But if the E-Type roadster looks beautiful in picture you should see one live: now we know that it is very rare to spot one in the wild but it is… Read More Unknown issue: 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
We have seen cars to be restored in any conditions, but it is the first time we see one that recalls the appearance of Tutankhamun’s mummy when Howard Carter took it out of his sarcophagus. Maybe that’s because of the black paint dried (and cracked) under the sun of California, and perhaps also because the… Read More The mummy: 1969 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
It is becoming increasingly rare (as with all classic cars) to find an E-Type first series that has survived the passing of time and the rearrangements of previous owners. This seems to be one of those survivors. The seller says that this car has belonged to a lady since 1992, is a self-matching numbers, still… Read More Same lady since ’92: 1963 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 FHC
This barn find E-Type is a bit different from many others being sold on the market in the same conditions: other than being one of the “flat floor” series cars, this is a very early car with the bonnet louvers welded (instead of being part of the bonnet itself). We all know that some details… Read More Welded louvers: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
This is a small classic cars collection that have to go: the seller is getting rid of it and, actually, it includes two interesting cars: a 1951 Hillman Minx and a 1953 jaguar XK 120, both are convertibles. For the lovers of the eighties, the collection also includes a 1986 Pontiac Trans Am and, by… Read More Getting rid of it: A classic car collection
This car is the 110th XK120 which came out of the Coventry factory and, as an early car, is one of the very few dressed with an alloy body, making it a special one. The astonishing thing is that the seller has not only one, but two of these cars: the other one is still… Read More Downsizing: 1950 Jaguar XK120 O.T.S. “Alloy”
There are many restored E-Type which fetch a lot of money at several auctions worldwide: those are generally restored cars but this isn’t. Indeed the seller says that this is an original car, an unmolested California black plate (unfortunately now that plate has been replaced) which have been stored in a garage for 30 years… Read More White survivor: 1964 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 F.H.C.
